    Audit culture and the infrastructures of excellence2015In: Learning and Teaching, ISSN 1755-2273, E-ISSN 1755-2281, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 29-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing upon ethnographic data, this article investigates the effects of a new online campus management system in one of the largest universities in Germany. It shows the various ways in which this - technological innovation influenced students', teachers' and administrative personnel's relations and everyday working practices and how it is influential in the reorganisation of university structures. The online management system is regarded as an important part of an emerging infrastructure of excellence, which materialises the changing understanding of qualitative studies and teaching. Findings show that the online management supports standardised and economised study, teaching and administrative practices and silences creativity and flexibility. However, these standardisations are negotiated and questioned by the actors involved.

    Scaling the Cloud: Making State and Infrastructure in Sweden2019In: Ethnos, ISSN 0014-1844, E-ISSN 1469-588X, Vol. 84, no 4, p. 698-718Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Popular representations imagine the internet as being immaterial and fluid; hidden from the public eye are the industry and complex infrastructure securing the functionality of the World Wide Web, as well as this industry's social and environmental effects. Focussing on the implementation of a Facebook data centre in the Swedish city of Lulea, this article investigates how the global cloud is localised within a specific historical and social context. It shows how this new industrial development becomes a part of state-making and regional identity-building processes by triggering the re-scaling of territories and shaping new geographies in relation to expanding cloud infrastructures. Tracing those infrastructure-making processes reveals some of the key dynamics between the Swedish state, its regions and the global IT economy.

    Zur Poetik der Infrastruktur: Technologien des Kühlens und der Imagination im digitalen Kapitalismus2017In: Zeitschrift für Volkskunde, ISSN 0044-3700, Vol. 113, no 1, p. 24-41Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [de]

    This article examines the downside of digitization processes industrial and infrastructural locations that facilitate virtual connectivity and collectivities. Based on the case of Facebook's data center in the Northern Swedish town of Lulea, the article describes processes of cloud infrastructuring. In the course of such infrastructuring processes, various technologies, communities of actors, stocks of knowledge and expertise, moral values, and organizational structures come together, new socio-technical figuration emerge, and social change is enabled. Particular attention is given to imaginings as a practice of knowledge production inherent to processes of infrastructuring. The article links what appears as merely virtual data flows to material and political channels, revealing their multiple local entanglements.
